Michigan Democratic Party Bashes Black Senate Contender For ‘Far-Right’ Anti-Abortion Stances – The Daily Caller

A Michigan Democratic spokesman bashed GOP U.S. Senate contender John James for his anti-abortion stances and called James’s opinions on abortion “far-right.” Michigan Democrats have attacked James over his anti-abortion policies and launched a website titled “John James Revealed” that discusses “erasing his toxic record.” James is the top GOP recruit who is running for Senate in 2020, MLive.com reported Saturday, and Michigan is a vital state in deciding which party controls the Senate. James is running against Democratic Michigan Sen. Gary Peters.

Jones on Worley separating Alabama Dems from DNC: ‘Just silly’ – Yellowhammer News

“It’s from the national group that any state party exists,” he told interviewer Sean Sullivan. Jones’ comment stands in opposition to Nancy Worley’s assertion on “Capitol Journal” that the group led by England, and backed by Jones and the DNC, is the “federal Democratic Party.” Worley contends she still leads the “state democratic executive committee.” When Sullivan asked Jones about Worley’s remarks, Jones said “it’s just silly, it’s just a silly comment” before listing more evidence for England’s chairmanship over Worley’s. This most recent back-and-forth between Jones and Worley continues a fight that started in August 2018 when Jones backed his ally Peck Fox’s attempt to oust Worley from her position as state chair.

Moore sues Democratic PACs for their role in the 2017 election – alreporter.com

Former chief justice and current Senate candidate Roy Moore filed suit against two Democratic PACs, their vendors, and the chairman of one of the PACs for defamation, defamation by implication, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and collaborating to create an elaborate disinformation campaign against him in the 2017 special election for U.S. Senate. In the complaint, Moore outlined his case against the defendants, whom he claims are responsible for spreading and financing scandalous accusations against his character and person, as well as making intimidating advertisements that would be used on digital media platforms. The ads falsely stated that voting records were public knowledge and would be used against individuals voting for Judge Moore instead of his opponent.

GOP Targeting Vulnerable Pro-Impeachment Democrats in Trump-Won Districts with $7 Million Ad Blitz – Breitbart

The GOP is aiming to expose the Democrat impeachment inquiry as a partisan bust, launching a coordinated, multimillion-dollar ad blitz targeting pro-impeachment lawmakers serving in districts that President Trump won in 2016. The GOP is, figuratively, dropping bombs on House Democrats, launching a $7 million coordinated anti-impeachment campaign spanning across 37 vulnerable districts. The massive campaign, which brands impeachment as a “politically motivated charade,” is coordinated by the American Action Network. The group works with other “like-minded groups” and describes its mission as putting “center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American people and spurring them into active participation in our democracy.”

USMCA Inches Forward in Congress, but Time May Be Running Short – JD Supra

With just weeks remaining on the 2019 congressional calendar, a potential House vote on legislation to implement the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) remains in doubt. Negotiations between House Democrats and the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) on possible changes to the USMCA remain incomplete, despite weeks of additional talks following an initial exchange of written proposals and counter-proposals in September 2019. Moreover, if the two sides are able to reach agreement in the coming weeks, other procedural hurdles likely will need to be overcome before the House would vote on a USMCA bill, raising the potential for further delays. Opposition from key Democratic constituencies, most notably organized labor, and several Democratic presidential candidates may also have reduced the political incentive for House Democratic leadership to come to an agreement with USTR and to support the final deal. Given the limited time remaining on the 2019 congressional calendar, and the possibility that the presidential election will deter consideration of the Agreement in 2020, there is a significant chance that the USMCA will not be implemented in the near-term. This alert summarizes recent developments regarding the USMCA and the potential obstacles that remain.

US Congress Initiative May Launch a Political Crisis in Ukraine – SF Bay Area Indymedia

Ukraine's permanent cooperation with the international community makes it impossible to imagine that changes in the Ukrainian policy wouldn't affect the US and the EU foreign agenda. The political situation in Kyiv, in its turn, is directly dependent on the climate in both the White House and the European Parliament. Thus, the financial and political support in its struggle against Russian aggressive policy forces Kyiv to constantly meet the world's democracy standards. This also applies to the fight against corruption, and the observance of human rights and freedoms, and the implementation of modern reforms.

Georgia Supreme Court upholds election despite alleged missing votes – New York Daily News

The Georgia Supreme Court ruled Thursday that there wasn't enough evidence to further dispute last year's election for lieutenant governor, which had inexplicably low vote totals. An election can't be overturned based solely on unusual vote counts in the lieutenant governor's race tens of thousands fewer than in every other statewide election the court wrote in its 94-page decision upholding a lower court's dismissal of the case. Specific evidence of illegal or improper votes is required, it said. The plaintiffs in the case alleged there were about 127,000 fewer votes than expected compared with previous elections, a larger disparity than the 123,172-vote margin of victory for Republican Geoff Duncan over Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico. "A party contesting an election must therefore offer evidence not merely theories or conjecture that places in doubt the result of an election," according to the court's 8-0 ruling, written by Justice Sarah Warren. "The petitioners in this case have not carried that burden."

Senate turns back challenge to short-term health insurance extensions – Star Tribune

The Senate defeated a resolution Wednesday that would have overturned a Trump administration rule that lets states extend short-term health insurance policies for up to three years as a substitute for traditional coverage. The short-term policies do not cover pre-existing conditions and require no minimal protections and place no limits on deductibles or copays. Fifty-two senators, all Republicans, voted to leave the rule in place after a debate over how it would affect Americans. Only Maine Sen. Susan Collins broke ranks with her party.

We're talking about the IoT startup, Helium, which offers more effective ways for your toaster and your car to talk to each other, sans the high voice. Crypto-Powered IoT Networks Are on Their Way to Over 250 US Cities – CoinDesk Excerpt: When internet-of-things (IoT) startup Helium first announced its crypto-mining modems, sales of the devices were limited to users in Austin, Texas. The company quickly sold out of its first production run designated for the Texas capital, but now Helium is shipping units much more broadly, to 263 cities around the United States, CoinDesk has learned. Of that group, a company spokesperson said the key cities are New York, San Francisco, Boulder, Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Seattle. Shipments for this next wave of hotspot production should begin in October. To recap, Helium is a network meant to help IoT devices like e-scooters, simple sensors and pet trackers get low-volume data to the internet quickly and at very low cost.

King Leopold had a simple task, turn the Congo into a viable money venture To that end, he succeeded. But in the process, he directed actions that led to the deaths of over 10 million people in Congo. The after-effects of that genocide still linger in the land. Caspian Report gives us a brief primer on the history of King Leopold. He also shows us how the specter of Leopold still affects the people of Congo to this day. King Leopold’s ghost still haunts the Congo – The Caspian Report - Video The #Congo’s natural resources have inspired a most unnatural history of greed and violence, which cost the lives of some 10 million. In the heart of Africa lies a country called the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is a vast place with lush forests, vigorous rivers, and incredible riches such as gold, timber, uranium, cobalt, diamond, etc. These natural resources have inspired a most unnatural history of greed and violence. For over a century, the Congo has been haunted by the memories of its past. While other African nations have come to terms with a history of exploitation and colonisation, the Congo continues to relive the unshakable legacy of one man – King Leopold II of Belgium, whose ventures cost the lives of some 10 million.
